and hurricane katrina. -- a van hurricane katrina. that and more coming up in the next hour. linda bell. back to you. >> see you soon. 39 degrees in the nation's capital. >> we are off to a cold start this morning. >> temperature is a going to be pretty steady throughout much of the day. we are watching for the first snowflakes of the season later on this afternoon. adam caskey is on snowflake what. good morning. >> good morning. we are expecting snow flakes for the evening commute. the driving to work is just fine. you'll notice blustery conditions for the midday. the drive home -- a light rain, but mainly some light snow. road temperatures are between 37 and 41 degrees, not expecting much accumulation on the road. there -- it will not be heavy enough in the washington area. especially during the rush hour as more cars are driving, that keeps the road temperatures up. closer to baltimore, a different story. heavier snow, and some accumulation on the roadways. grassy services, a little trace. that much possible later today. that is about it. still a one out of hand with this storm. look at th
in the last 40 years: ivan, dennis, katrina. and katrina i was the commander of the medical forces in pensacola, florida, and i owned the branch clinics that existed in new orleans, pascagula and gulf port, mississippi. we thought we had dodged the bullet and then the levies broke and who would have predicted that there was a sea of humanity in the super dome that basically was in extreme miss? who would have predicted in this day and age we would lose many, many people based on the fact they couldn't be medevacked, that the hospitals themselves had been flooded and the hospital staff was having to carry critically ill patients up to the top floors to avoid the water that was filling in the rooms. who would have predicted that? and were we set up to handle that? and who would have predicted in the early goings there would be civic disorder and civic disobedience and lack of command and control and then the military came there and provided that stability for a while until the civic authorities took over and eventually got things moving in a fairly organized continuum. we learned
after hurricane katrina, which we all know will be probably the greatest civil engineering set of blunders that our country has made in our country's history. and what we all learn from hurricane katrina is what happens when we don't have a community that is prepared and a set of relationships that is ready to be hit by the big one. which leads me to the third reason why i wake up at night. the neighborhoods that i represent in the northeast not only represent the oldest neighborhoods in our city, but some of the most vulnerable. we have some of the poorest residents. half of my district are recent immigrants who are mono lingual. i have hundreds of constituents who live in buildings that contain them where they live three, four, five people in a room that might be no larger than 10 by 15 feet, in buildings that are absolutely prone to earthquake, fire, and the next major disaster. and, so, i was asked to just mention if i had three things that i want you to tell us as your civilian leaders. the first has to do with how to deal with community shock. two nights ago as a couple o
it in policy over the years and certainly things have advanced since 9/11 and hurricane katrina, but there has been a real gap in detailed preplanning for emergency response, particularly as it works its way down the chain into the tactical forces that would respond, most specifically i think those on active duty. this is an area that we don't tend to pay a lot of attention to and very often when it comes we tray to look the other way. i believe that we have been reasonably responsive in immediate response, immediate response by doctrine and policy are military dod authorities moving out their gates into their neighborhoods when a disaster hits right next door. i mean, that seems to make sense. we have good relationships at our bases and stations and the ability to roll out and assist is something you would expect to work out pretty well. some of that has matured, in fact. in the state of california we have established a number of agreements, most particularly the wildfires where both third fleet and the expeditionary force assign helicopters in the need we are requested, it's pre-planned, o
of cars flooded and destroyed by super storm sandy, it could exceed that of katrina. watch out, coming up a man who sold more than his fair share of cars. cofounder and former ceo of car max on what mr. obama's reelection means for our economy. and a selloff on wall street, a wild ride for commodities, just look at the gold chart. up next off chicago on whether we might see a continuation tomorrow. we are coming right back. liz: several commodities tanks today following the election result. david: phil flynn at the price futures group joins us now. i don't want to barrel th. the lead, but why didn't gold take off? one of the main factors will be continuation of fed values that raise the dollar value of gold. why didn't it pop more than it did? >> i think because of the concerns over europe. when we are concerned about europe it is always bearish for gold. why is that? if the euro zone falls apart, wanting to have a value is gold. that we have even seen is a possibility of a way out of this mess. even talking "wall street journal" the possibility of goldbach eurobonds as a solution to try
and i were down at katrina right after it happened and one of the issues, you know, there were many medical issues. one was pharmaceuticals. did you discuss in this pharmaceuticals and how you would get your pharmaceuticals? >> we didn't specifically discuss it. we did i think in the shock trauma platoon know about what medications are carried on the c130, what medications were available. during the hhs presentation there was talk about the large manufacturers, if there were problems getting medications, that the federal government could facilitate that. but it is a great point. it's something locally we are working on with our pharmaceutical group because it is a big concern if we do lose supply how do we replenish that. san francisco does not have a lot of storage space so we are not able to store medications to a great extent in the area. >> i was just going to echo, our capability does come with its own internal pharmaceutical supply, although it is limited and so that would be important for us to understand what the resupply process would be as we move forward on that. so
francisco to advance our lifeline's resilence we are the first major u.s. city to (inaudible) post katrina where he saw firsthand where a critical role these systems played in the city's recovery. i am honored to chair the council because i feel it's crucial that the public sector work side by side with our private sector partners to do everything we can today to ensure we will meet the needs of our residents in the days, weeks and years after a disaster. the objective of the lifeline council are to develop and improve collaboration in the city and county across regions regularly -- to develop and improve collaboration in the city and across the region by regularly convening a group of senior level operation officers of local and regional life line providers, understanding intersystem dependencies of enhancing planning, restoration and reconstruction, share information about the recovery plans and priorities and establish coordination process for life lines restoration and recovery following a major disaster. i'm going to go back to the last slide and just say today's conversation i want
on those contingencies. but we look at the national response framework. it was rewritten post katrina. and another key part of partnerships, when i was the federal on scene coordinator during deep water horizon, it's not in the national response framework, but every parish president, every mayor, every governor had a coast guard liaison officer at the oak pride and above level. so, if they didn't like how the response was going, go to my liaison officer. don't go to anderson cooper and then cause the white house to react to what they're seeing on cnn. so, how do you get in front of that news cycle? and the only way you can do that as tip o'neill said, all things in politics are local and i think we heard from vice admiral nathan that i think all responses are local as well. and, so, we really need to start most importantly at the local level, at those planning levels, because the first shot of any campaign, the plan will change, but the partnerships need to remain constant. >> and, general baldwin, we heard from colonel span owe about now your three hats of authority, your state hat,
disaster yet. we have had disasters, i was in katrina on an urban search and rescue team, i've been in pretty much all major engagements as far as wild land fires in california, but if you look at a global disaster perspective where you have a hundred thousand victims like a tsunami or a large scale event, we have yet to experience that in this nation. i think the agreements we have here today and the relationships we develop today are going to be key to mitigate that. the other scenario that we are concerned with is a coordinated aerial incendiary attack by al qaeda. one of the things we've seen already in the european union is suspect of al qaeda starting fires in the eu if that happened in california in the right weather conditions, it would be disasterous and everybody in this room would likely be involved. but to go back, it's all -- for me it's all about relationships, it's all about communication and respecting each other's mission. we certainly appreciate our relationships with all 3 agencies up here. the last thing i would say with respect to technology, one of the thin
of the l.a. riots that were highlighted during hurricane katrina, we had two milltrix out there, the active force and responding. with changes in the law and changes in focus and direction we're starting to fix a lot of that and come together as one joint team to be able to better serve the people here in the state of california and the rest the nation in times of disaster. but there is work that needs to be done. first, we need to find a way that we can share capabilities that are resident within each of our organizations. as the commander of the army national guard you would think i know what forces are available in the army reserve in california. but i don't. i don't even know who their general officers are. i have no visibility on what forces are available at camp pendleton depending on your deployment cycle what fleet week can bring to bear. and we need to find a way, perhaps dcl, north palm being the broker of that, to maintain a better capabilities database so we know what is immediately available because under our old constructs, if we needed additional help in the national guard in
and local platforms, whether it was katrina or other events we've actually been able to bring in national guard platforms to provide 911 systems for cities that have lost those systems. we recently in the joplin tornados and also tuscaloosa tornados we brought in dod equipment to replace what was destroyed. from the fire side i know there's a lot of things you are doing to work around the interoperatability issues with regard to communications between fire and dod and maybe if ray or anybody else wants to speak to that. >> our communications challenges still exist. we have excellent telecom communications, we have a layered effect of our radio systems. we have mobile command posts that we can exercise. so we're prepared for power outages, reduction of telecoms, we have a layered effect for our communications. but as everybody here said, we need help. if somebody here can help me get a navy or marine corps aircraft to talk to my guys on the ground tactically, i need that and i don't have that today. i use a command control helicopter, a civilian helicopter, to handle that and transfe

to the response to hurricane katrina. what president obama did when he came into office was strongly and unapologetically assert the government's role in dealing with our problems. in a wide array of he car market, small businesses, tax reform. he that at great personal, political risk. and what he got back in return was, a very strong attack on the notion that we're in this together and that government has a role to play. first in the grass roots of the tea party on the ground and then in the air in what you documented, martin, and what the audience knows, one of the most well-funded attacks in the history of american politics. what i think happened last night is more than just a re-election of barack obama as a man that people trust to lead our country, which is, i ink, good. i think something deeper happened. i think there was an endorsement of the notion, liberal notion, that government has a role to play here and can help everyone and even the playing field. i think we're in an historic period today. >> people said yes. dr. peterson, wasn't there also a victory for the president
by sandy may exceed the number of cars destroyed by hurricane katrina. if this is the case, sandy would be the single largest disaster to ever impact the country's vehicles. it's important to note, if you're ever in the market for a used car in the near future, check for signs of water damage. and finally, if you aspire for your baby to be a leader one day like president obama, it helps if they were not born during the summer. citing a study from the researchers in british column bark "the philadelphia inquirer" says summer babies or those born in june or july are less likely to make it up the corporate ladder. that is, they are typically younger than others in their class and older kids in the same grade tend to do better and take on more leadership roles in the -- later in life. that is business news. live at bloomberg headquarters in new york, i'm linda bell reporting for abc 7 news. back to you. >> thanks so much, linda. both of you guys gasping with disgust, as she says summer babies aren't going to be c.e.o.'s. >> june, july. >> m
ask the folks who still have no power. at this point katrina, most folks that had their power restored. neil: that's a very good point. the idea that this campaign by governor romney has come this close . great second-guessing, but the real emphasis will have to be for the republican party irrespective of whether governor romney windsor knot, helen the world that is corrupt the opportunity that was theirs for the u.s. senate? how is it that the republican party seems so at a touch with the american people that they could lose all of these opportunities and actually be dominated rhetorically and in the language and messaging of campaigning in 2012. does what happened. neil: missouri right now goes for mitt romney, leading by two points. i don't think that's a shock. again, pick up ten electoral votes. another alert. power restored. >> excellent. congratulations. let's hope that the rest of new jersey -- neil: lou has a nuclear power generator powering his compound. >> i want to give credit to sussex rural electric who delivers on their problems. >> something happened. let's go to bed ch
. >> this is a disgrace. everyone had a lesson of katrina. for any governor, for any in my judgment, any president, and the mayor not to have an emergency plan to deal with this kind of situation is coming to me, extraordinary. i'm sure we're going to have retrospectives on it, but it is a very difficult situation. neil: in the nor'easter coming. >> and now we have a nor'easter coming. rehearing that it will be less %-the truth of the matter is, until we come to terms of the fact that we have two-thirds of the gas stations in new jersey and new york in this region affected, a lot of people are going to be inconvenienced. meanwhile, in terms of the selection president obama walks out with a photo op with governor christie. he is selling hard. neil: you came down hard and governor christie. >> well, i think -- you know, i certainly did. i find the governor to be a smart fellow, but i don't find it very interesting to see people make excuses. he said he said thank you. i said he slobbered over the president. and the fact of the matter is, he did. it's going to be interesting as we define these exit p
the businesses back up and running. we saw that after katrina and hurricane irene so we will give you live updates throughout the day about what is going on in staten island. coastal flood warning is in effect. the glory evacuating this neighborhood. back to you. >> normally this wouldn't be such a big deal, got to get the work done. thank you. dagen: more on this brutal sell-off, the biggest sell-off we have seen since june. standing by to talk with us. connell: below 13,000. back in a moment on markets now. connell: market sell-off post-election down 300 plus, the dow below 13,000. we want to bring in mark fatah in, publisher of what is called the gloom, boom, and doom report. he calls in markets from overseas. he will be calling in from thailand today, but we are down 315 and we will reconnect the line because he is a good person to talk to while we wait and only take a second. here are the numbers for you down 2.4%. we were talking about the fiscal cliff, whether you would see many coming in and out of treasury and people buying treasuries, yields are down today, everything down. dagen
with that hurricane. >> woodruff: comparisons being made to hurricane katrina, not only new jersey and new york. we also want to say this brings the electoral college projected total at this point-- it's early in the evening-- to 79 electoral votes for president obama 82 electoral vote for governor romney. we know we need 270-- they need 270 in order to become president. >> ifill: of course we have to talk about new jersey because david and mark, chris christie, the governor of the new jersey, royaled the wate a littlebit this week by actually having kind things to say about president obama, not that that accountedly the outcome in new jersey, a deeply blue state, but i wonder whether we're watching chris christie more closely. >> i think he did it for severe reasons. his state got whalloped. he was emotionally drawn as anybody in those circumstances. i don't think he was thinking of his future political process. i do think sandy had a political impact. i think the exit polls give some suggestion of that. and partly because they saw the president being effective, but partly because they saw him wor
trailers, and you hearken back to -- fema trailers and you harken back to katrina. we have moved to how to improve housing. it is an option we are looking at, and it may be a good solution for some folks who live more in a suburban area or less dense housing areas where there may not be available until assistance but the other thing is working with a lot of the industrial -- not industrial, but industry corporate housing er programs onrs to get more available housing stock they may have. because there is so many people impacted, we are not precluding any options, but we're not yet insultve not yet manufacturers housing, but we are prepared to support that if the state department's -- install many factors housing, but we are prepared to support that if the state determines that is impacted. we did not let this preclude solutions, particularly for people for people who, either because of jobs or schools or available housing stock, did not want to leave their communities, and this may work in those cases. >> and that concludes our call pick four more information about fema, please visit fe
pictures were only part of the story. the other part was, this time, unlike what happened after katrina, this time the federal relief agencies and the state agencies actually did a really good job. i think people just may have given the president 134 credit for that. >> pelley: nancy cordes is in chicago at the obama victory rally. >> well, scott, short time ago the president who is not here at his rally yet but down the street at upscale hotel thanking no doubt his staffers who helped him go over the top tonight. he sent out an e-mail to all of his supporters across the country telling them, thank you and saying, this was no accident tonight. this is because of everything that you did. and it is true that tonight's election is a validation of his ground game. he had 800 field offices across the country concentrated in those battleground states compared to 300 for governor romney. look at ohio, the president had 137 field offices in that state. governor romney 39. now the romney campaign always argued that that didn't matter that they weren't in the real estate business they didn't ne
